The Doers

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22 KJV.

Peppy threw a shoe last week and as it was coming off, it broke part of his hoof. Yet, just a few days later, he gave his all in a cowhorse show even though during the show, his hoof cracked yet again. We were watching closely and could not tell at all that anything was off.

Peppy is a doer.

A few months ago I was watching a junior rodeo. The arena judge is very busy at these. He’s watching all contestants, flagging, giving advice to each participant on how they might improve. He is busy! Yet, between contestants the arena judge rode up to the fence and instructed his seven year old daughter to go get the little girl sitting a few rows over who was alone and invite her to be with the daughter and her friends.

THAT, my friends, is a doer!

Sure, everyone notices. Some people are willfully ignorant they say things like “yeah, I saw that and I wondered, but…” and they seem to think nothing of their complete failure to act!

The arena judge saw and then he did something!

May we all observe and do!
